Page 59    

-Katherine Anne Porter Love without marriage can sometimes be very awkward for all concerned; but marriage without love simply removes that institution from the territory of the humanly admissible, to my mind. Love is a state in which one lives who loves, and whoever loves has given himself away; love then, and not marriage, is belonging. Marriage is a public declaration of a man and a woman that they have formed a secret alliance, with the intention to belong to, and share with each other, a mystical estate; mystical exactly in the sense that the real experience cannot be communicated to others, nor explained even to oneself on rational grounds. -Katherine Anne Porter

-Erich Segal Love means never having to say you’re sorry. -Erich Segal, Love Story

-Chinese proverb Love sickness needs a love cure. -Chinese proverb

-Robertson Davies If we seek the pleasures of love, passion should be occasional, and common sense continual. -Robertson Davies

-D.H. Lawrence The love between man and woman is the greatest and most complete passion the world will ever see, because it is dual, because it is of two opposing kinds. -D.H. Lawrence

-Walter Savage Landor When she kissed me once in a play,
Rubies were less bright than they;
And less bright were those which shone
In the palace of the Sun.
Will they be as bright again?
Not if kiss'd by other men. -Walter Savage Landor, Rubies

-Thomas Babington Macaulay The kiss, in which he half forgets even such a yoke as yours. -Thomas Babington Macaulay, Lays of Ancient Rome -Virginia

-Steve Martin A kiss may not be the truth, but it is what we wish were true. -Steve Martin

-Joaquin Miller I throw a kiss across the sea,
I drink the winds as drinking wine,
And dream they all are blown from thee,
I catch the whisper'd kiss of thine. -Joaquin Miller, England

-Coventry Patmore How should great Jove himself do else than miss
To win the woman he forgets to kiss. -Coventry Patmore, De Natura Deorum

-Martin Opitz Kisses are the messengers of love. -Martin Opitz
